El Mercado Central
For a change of pace, you might walk through this huge market. Go where many of the locals shop. Its all indoors, so if you want to duck the hot sun or a rain shower, this could be the place. Cheap chicken, meats, fruits, veggies, spices, etc are all to be found here.
We saw 2 chickens for less than $3. Two kilos (over 4 pounds) of tomatoes for 1P/$.33US. There were several places in the market to eat or get a drink.
Its located on the Florida pedestrian mall and Av San Martin.
Salta, north-west Argentina
"Near the roof of the world"
The north-west was the first port of call for Spanish Conquistadors entering the country from Peru in the sixteenth century. Although, as a result, the region is steeped in Spanish history and traditions, there are also fascinating archaeological sites bearing witness to the pre-Hispanic heritage of the country.
"Salta, la terra mas Linda"
The last big city on the road to Bolivia, Peru and the north of Chili
Salta is so different from Jujuy on the touristic point of view, the Salta gouvernment did not sleep
Traces of a rich colonial period and now a main area for caddling, sugar and tabacco cultivating.
